These Are The Breaks
These Are The Breaks: the pdf includes the patterns for all 3-pieces; a capelet, a buttoned scarf/cowl, a set of armwarmers. All 3 pieces are designed with garter stitch and breaks of open stitches to serve as buttonholes. They can be worn any number of ways. This set is the Prequel to BREAKING BIG!

Wear them all together, or break the pieces up! Knit them to give as gifts, or keep them for yourself.
